I don’t want to create a new topic as this also fits.
In which way does Sparkle implement the Font Awesome Icons?
Is it just a Link to the US-Server?
Or ist it stored into the project? Which means the icons are loaded from “my” Hosting-Server.
I ask because of the GDPR (German DSGVO).
There’s no privacy implication for using Font Awesome icons. Sparkle would warn you if there was.
Okay. So this is not relevant for Sparkle-Users:
Why is Font Awesome relevant under data protection law?
In order for Font Awesome to be able to provide icons, websites automatically load them via a server in the USA with every visit to the site. In this context, the company behind Font Awesome collects data on, among other things
the browser, the operating system and the IP address
of the user. Some of this is personal data. These are particularly protected by the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Site operators must therefore fulfil special obligations in order to be able to use Font Awesome in a legally secure manner.
It’s not a problem in Sparkle, no.
